about this product

Product Details

Great Wall Hanger Addition to the Sports Room

A saw was used to cut away 1/4 of this modern major league baseball to show exactly what the ball is made of. The core, a sphere of cork, is called ‘the pill'. The core is surrounded by a rubber casing.  That is followed by three layers of wool yarn, totaling hundreds of yards, that allows it to retain its shape after being struck by the bat. The outer leather casing has 108 double stitches, sewn by hand. While a single baseball may take hours to make, it could be out of commission from just a few pitches. Mounted on a cedar wood plank with a reproduction of the 1924 patent and a brass plaque with the label "Baseball - A glimpse inside ….".  The plank measures 15" x 5-1/2" x 3/4" thick. Weighs 1 lb. 3.8 oz. Made in the U.S.A
